Next Celtic Manager Odds: Rodgers Closes in on Hoops Return

Celtic Manager Odds

Celtic are on the lookout for a new manager following the announcement that former boss Ange Postecoglou has moved to Tottenham, with the Hoops now once again in the market for a new boss off the back of their impressive treble-winning season.

Brendan Rodgers is the firm favourite to take over the role at Celtic Park, with the bookies pricing him as low as 1/20 take over from Postecoglu at Celtic Park and make his return to Glasgow following his departure in 2019.

Brendan Rogers @ 1/14

Rodgers enjoyed some of the best years of his career at Celtic and has openly said he would be eager to return to this role.

Despite a torrid final season with Leicester, resulting in his sacking in early April of this year, he did take the Foxes to two consecutive 5th places finishes in what is considered one of the hardest leagues in the world.

His links with the club are strong as well, with Rodgers being a a boyhood fan, with the former Watford boss also having won consecutive domestic trebles with them.

Rodgers seems to be closing in on a Celtic return this summer, with recent reports stating that the 50-year-old is in advanced talks with the Hoops over a return.

His odds have dropped dramatically to 1/14 with Sky Bet following this, with his return to Celtic now something of a formality according to the bookies.

It'll definitely be interesting to see how Rodgers copes with life back in Glasgow, with big things expected of the former Liverpool boss given how well he did during his first spell at Celtic Park.

Enzo Maresca @10/1

Enzo Maresca has led a varied and eclectic managerial career so far, following his retirement from football in 2017. Much of this time has been spent in assistant roles, with his only outing as a full manager ending in dismissal.

He has held noteable assisting roles at Sevilla, West Ham and Manchester City, learning under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola.

This experience and time under Pep has yielded managers like Mikel Arteta and Xavi, both now in roles at Arsenal and Barcelona respectively.

His only full managerial role was at Parma in the Serie B and resulted in his sacking after failing to challenge for promotion back to the Serie A.

He could well be set to make another foray into proper management and the Celtic role could be right up his street, with their considerable predisposition to success in the Scottish League.

Kjetil Knutsen @20/1

Knutsen is a 54 year Norwegian manager currently holding a role at Bodø/Glimt. Most famous for his side's outings in the Conference and Europa League, where clubs travelling into the Arctic Circle struggled, notably beating Roma 6-1 back in 2021.

Since this time, he has led Bodø to their first ever Eliteserien, with Knutsen guiding his side to the title twice in 2020.

His success could well translate on to Celtic, not that they need the help, with it set to be interesting to see how the Norwegian adapts to life at one of the UK's biggest clubs should he end up moving.

Next Manager Betting: How Does It Work?

Next manager betting is a fairly big part of football betting, with bettors often staking money on these types of markets whenever a manager is sacked, or should a manager be going through a tough spell results-wise.

Bookmakers will pay out winning bets once the club themselves have officially confirmed their next manager, with this usually coming in the form of a statement or press release.

Bookies such as bet365 have specific rules regarding what constitutes an interim manager and a permanent manager, with these odds being contingent on if the Manager is in the permanent role on 01/09/2023.

Bets on caretaker and interim managers will not be settled as winners unless the manager in question is the permanent manager on 01/09/2023.

Should a manager be appointed in a 'head coach' role, any bets on this manager will also be settled as winners.
